Leaked specs could be showing a revamped Nexus - read the full have unearthed some specs of a peculiar Samsung device that has a model number I9260. The device is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, offering a 4.65" SuperAMOLED display but raises the bar with two Cortex-A9 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz (compared to 1.2GHz on the Galaxy Nexus), an 8...

Confusing this. The Nexus seems doomed to be named in Apple's ban-list. Why develop a revised version? I actually thought the spec's on the existing Nexus were OK to start with with the exception of the lack of Micro SD slot. The BIG problem was the battery life - I can only hope that they've upgraded its capacity. Even so, as I said, it may be fairly academic anyway!

Don't think it's going to be a Dual core! Maybe Tegra 3 or A15 krati s4 maybe cause I don't think Google/Android won't miss the chance anymore after nexus 7 successful.

The new nexus (like the previous 2) will NOT have the 4 core, the first 2 I think had TI *(well not tergra 2 i know), I think the new nexus will have the S4 pro and will smoke the SGS3

This actually makes a lot of sense. Samsung is making a new device to come out before the new iPhone and the next Nexus. They already have all the specs from the Galaxy Nexus so they're making a model between that one and the Galaxy S3. Just like htc did with the Nexus One and the Desire, just like the Nexus S and the Galaxy S... The only question is the TouchWiz issue and the pricing.

Better camera, Bravia enginee, walkman built in music player, a very good desigan plus a fablous UI. the only thing Sony need a good hardwaer (CPU,GPU and big battrey).

It probably wouldn't have Bravia Engine though but would be getting a whopping 13mpx camera and awesome xperia exterior design!

I have the impression that Nexus devices are being built intentionally as a sub-par devices compared to other flagship phones, so that they can't effectively compete with them.
